Mancano ormai pochi giorni all’inizio della VIEW Conference, il principale evento italiano dedicato alla computer grafica che quest’anno si terrà dal 21 al 25 ottobre a Torino, ed è venuto il momento di scoprire tutti gli ospiti.

Dall’anno scorso la manifestazione, che di anno in anno è cresciuta sempre di più, si è spostata alle Officine Grandi Riparazioni (OGR), una location in grado di ospitare una lineup di ospiti sempre più ambiziosa che animano una gran quantità di eventi tra keynote, masterclass, workshop e panel. Parliamo di nomi di altissimo profilo del mondo del cinema e della televisione tra animazione, videogiochi, effetti visivi e altro ancora.

Uno degli ospiti più attesi è Michael Giacchino, compositore di alcune delle colonne sonore più amate degli ultimi anni e che terrà un concerto il 21 ottobre dalle 21:00 alle 23:00. Il Visionary Award di quest’anno, poi, verrà consegnato a Ralph Eggleston, una delle colonne portanti della Pixar.

I nomi coinvolti sono tantissimi: da Brad Bird a Rob Legato, passando per Conrad Vernon, Peter Ramsay, Jill Culton, Dean DeBlois, Glenn Entis, Hal Hickel, Glen McIntosh e Tom Wujec.
